DALLAS — Today, ULCC Frontier Airlines (F9) celebrated the opening of a new crew base at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). F9 has experienced DFW’s fastest growth among carriers since 2019.
Members of Team Frontier participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the event with airline President and CEO Barry Biffle and Milton De La Paz, Vice President of Airline Relations at DFW Airport.
Within the first year of operation, the base is anticipated to employ up to 120 pilots and 220 flight attendants. The airline is anticipated to produce more than $78 million in local wages annually, with further growth anticipated in the following years, when combined with maintenance and airport positions.
To celebrate the occasion, F9 is offering its low fares to four new nonstop destinations from DFW. Those destinations, which started this month, include Montego Bay, Jamaica (MBJ), San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) Cleveland (CLE), and New York LaGuardia (LGA).
With the new service, F9 will serve 21 destinations from DFW, making the airline the airport’s third-largest carrier based on destinations served.
